    I forget the exact term but Michka has stated that you always want to
    use offline synchronization if there's a chance the connection will
    fail as such have a high rate of corruptions.

    However I'm a bit confused when you state Intranet dialup. Intranet
    is usually a term for web pages. Are you running an Access FE at the
    other end of the dial-up connection or a web browser?

    I'd suggest visiting www.trigeminal.com to see if Michka has anything
    to say on that topic. And/or visit the replication newsgroup.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
